Yellow



In continuation with the detox series :-),today's colour is yellow...This picture was taken enroute Wayanaad.As far as the eye could see,sunflowers bobbed in the air,smiling and beckoning us to come join them in their merry dance.Bees buzzed around the flowers awaiting their energy drink for the day...So much perfection!.How did a bunch of protons,neutrons and electrons turn into something so beautiful ?.All that yellow made us feel sunny and got us in great spirits !

Doesn't this colour revebrate with positive energy and optimism?.Apparently,according to colour studies,yellow colour promotes creativity and instills positivity and higher levels of energy...Elsewhere,i read that it is a colour of deceit and cowardice.. I think i will stick to the positivity bit because i don't quite feel anything negative when i see this colour..

Blissful Sunshine,gorgeous sun flowers,Ripe yellow lemons...Ooohh Laa Laaa...

But strangely i can't find too many natural yellow things around me !!!.My knowledge of things with this colour has regressed to some unknown fold of the brain.I remember when i was in school we used to play this game called Name,Place,Animal things where we would pick up a letter and list all the names,places,animals and things beginning with that letter... Would you like to play a modification of that game here ?

Do you have any special memories of objects with the colour yellow?Preferrably natural yellow objects !

I can hear people muttering..All is this fine ,but you wont catch me sporting clothes with this colour ;-)

Yellow is my Mom's favorite colour! Thats the first thing that comes to my mind when I say or see the word 'Yellow'. She is obsessed with that colour!

My mom's fav colour too... Yellow reminds me of her always... Same pinch Deeps :)

Not the colour yellow, but the sunflowers... we were in some village in Maharashtra, jumped the fence, to click pictures in the sunflower field...the watchmen came running, and we ran away with a dried sunflower to zoom away from their sticks and screams :) :P....

My dad wasn't much of a lawn keeper. (Neither am I actually.) But because of his easy going ways of the yard, we always had plenty of Dandelions in our front yard. There are so many superstitions surrounding the dandelion. The two that we played were the simple wish once the yellow petals had gone to seed and you blew them into the wind. And if someone holds a dandelion under your chin and your chin turns yellow (it always does) then you like butter (we all did).

Great post. Thanks for helping me remember a sweet part of my childhood.
